Day 9 – National Novel Writing Month

I did get writing done yesterday, I just didn’t have time to post afterwards. The writing itself was divided up a bit through out the day so it made it hard to figure out when I was done and when I’d be posting. So I left it.

Today I did get some writing done. Yesterday and today however, I didn’t reach the minimum word count. I am still over where I’m supposed to be (I think) and I’m nearing 20,000 words. The way I have the last several chapters broken up is that a lot is happening but it’s all spanning over the course of several chapters. Due to this, it leaves me only small sections that I can write at one time, leaving me with lower word counts. I’ll probably start doubling up on the sections I write, but right now, I’m a bit low for daily average. I’ll catch up.

Hope everyone is doing well with the challenge!


About rachelsparling

I'm a writer working on a manuscript for a novel. I love to write and I've been doing it for 17 years. Through several story ideas I have figured out what works and what doesn't, and I've learned a lot about myself and my writing style. I love to read and escape to many different worlds. I've also learned a lot about good writing and bad writing through both reading a lot and acquiring an education in English literature, and becoming an ESL teacher. I enjoy filming and photographing all sorts of things and putting together short documentaries and videos. I love my camera.
